In any performance it is attractive to present something topical. An easy way to do this, is to use the current day’s number, in our case number SEVEN, and this is what the 7th episode of the Magic Advent Calendar is about. In the PDF you can download as today’s Magic Advent Calendar gift, the piece “Seven” will fit the bill. Some of you may recognize it as an early write-up of the trick that later went into my book Confidences.
I go even further, and give you the complete PDF of what were the notes for a lecture I gave at Brent Geris’s Magic Apple magic shop in Hollywood, Los Angeles, on ? April 2012. I titled them The Unedited Card Magic of Roberto Giobbi to make it sound intriguing, but really it was exactly what it read: I had only little time to put the notes together, so nobody could proof-read them, and I thought it was a clever way of “staging” any mistakes in it. Of course it was not so clever, but just necessary 🙂 Nonetheless, the edition was limited and numbered, and only 50 printed an signed copies exist, legal ones, I mean 🙂
You’ll find that most of the content later went into my book Confidences, and the item titled “TTTCBE” (The Trick That Can Be Explained) even made it into a commercial trick, one of the very few I ever put out, with moderate success, although those who have it insist that it is quite good (you can get it from The Magic Apple or directly from me, if you really need to…). I can only tell you that I have fooled luminaries like Juan Tamariz and Bernard Bilis with it, so it has to be good – oh my, this sounds like a mail from Penguin 🙂

Do not send in any editing suggestions, it’s too late now 🙂
PS: My book Confidences is now out of print and will likely never be reprinted. However, I do have a few copies left, which I’m happy to sign to your name and send them to you, but you will have to buy it: CLICK HERE.
